Neil deGrasse Tyson reads Mean Tweets to him about Pluto
July 17th, 2015 under Neil deGrasse Tyson. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 2006, Pluto was downgraded to a Dwarf Planet because of Neil deGrasse Tyson‘s findings. Back then Twitter was just a dwarf social media site, so people weren’t able to let him know how they feel about taking away Pluto’s status a planet.
That was then and this is now. On Monday, New Horizons, sent back photos from Pluto and people’s anger was reignited. So much so, they took to Twitter and let their feelings be known to him. The Tweets got to him because he took to YouTube to read them to us.
Even though Tyson and I went to the same JHS, I am siding with the mean Tweeters. Pluto will always be a full-sized planet to me, even if it is a 1/5th size of our moon.


Stephen Colbert defends Pluto to Neil deGrasse Tyson

Today was a big day for Pluto because NASA’s New Horizon was able to transmit images of the planet and her moon. While you and I call her planet, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Director of the Hayden Planetarium, calls her a Dwarf Planet.
Since today was her big day, Stephen Colbert thought she needed some defending. Even though his Late Show doesn’t debut on CBS until September 8th, he still interviewed the Pluto naysayer.
Was he able to convince him? I think he got him to consider adding a 9th planet to his tie, don’t you?
I would write more about their conversation, but even though Tyson and I went to same Junior High School, I have no idea what he is talking about. He went to Harvard and I went to the Harvard of the South, University of Miami. The only planet we studied there was the sun because we worshiped her. I bet you are going to go all Neil deGrasse Tyson and tell me that the sun is not a planet.


Cosmos is out of this world!
March 9th, 2014 under National Geographic, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Seth MacFarlane. [ Comments: none ]

Remember when you were little kid in school; and you learned about the planets in Science and you got all excited? Well that is the feeling you will get watching Cosmos on Fox and Nat Geo tonight and every Sunday at 9p. The 13 part series updates the 1980 Emmy winning PBS series that was hosted by Carl Sagan. Now nearly 35 years later we know so much more about worlds that aren’t our own and our own world, and Neil deGrasse Tyson will educate us something we have forgotten but want to remember.
So sit back and feel like a kid again and if you are kid enjoy learning again via Cosmos.
